China has always looked at Taiwan as its own territory. Right from governing to uniting with this place. Even the military force has always made an effort to keep Taiwan.
On Wednesday, after President Tsai lng-wen was appointed,a spokesman at the mainland's top Taiwan body said Beijing will "never tolerate" Taiwan's separation from China.
According to news agency Xinua, spokesman for the Taiwan Affairs Office, Ma Xiaoguang, mentioned that Taiwan has always been a part of their territory.
He said, China had "sufficient ability to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity”. Beijing would "never tolerate any separatist activities or external forces interfering in China's internal politics".
Further, Ma said, China is ready for reunification but it wouldn’t accept any form of Taiwanese independence separatist activities. China has spoken about following the principles of one country, two systems. In addition, this is with regards to governing the semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong through apolitical framework.
In recent times, these problems had to come up only because China kept Taiwan away from diplomatic allies. For now, the military is set to operate the two States separately.
Tsai is disgusted by Beijing because she feels Taiwan is a Sovereign State and not part of “one China”.
